Palmer Luckey appeared in a county town in Japan with hot costume suddenly

After having left Facebook, where in the world is the  Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey? He disappeared for a while, and appeared in Japan suddenly.


"Tokushima VR movie festical in Machi Asobi. Palmer Luckey of the developer of Oculus Rift who is the leading person of the current VR boom came! It is the biggest surprise in this event."


"Palmer luckey who made Oculus Rift comes to Tokushima!"

Tokushima Machi Asobi is an pop cultures event held twice a year in Tokushima-shi, Tokushima Prefecture. Tokushima-shi is the capital city of Tokushima Prefecture on Shikoku island in Japan. There is county town, but a lot of companies and creators about anime, manga, and game participate whenever this is held. Furthermore, many otakus and tourists gather to enjoy this. Of course this contributes to regional vitalization.
Because VR film festival was held this time, it was not unnatural that Palmer Luckey participated in this event. However, his appearances might be slightly unnatural.










He cosplayed as "Quiet" from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. His hot costume and friendliness became the big topic in the Japanese VR industry in Twitter. Yoshihito Kondoh of Japanese VR evangelist took his funny photo.


"I put material of crappy collage."

Japanese VR creators used him in VR contents at once.




Of course he did not participate in this event only for a cosplay. He tried VR contents exhibited in event and gave a speech in conference.


In addition, he participates in Unity's Unite 2017 Tokyo and indie game event Tokyo Sandbox. His Japan tour continues still more. YOLO! Gotta have fun!
